Need to order some 29er tubeless tires. Would like to go as light as possible but looking for quality as well.

Suggestions are welcome. Will be used on hardpack trails and mild single track.

Rocket Ron evo - 480g confirmed, Maxis Ikons are also very light but have thinner sidewalls then the RR's

Another nod to the Rocket Ron's. Mine have been on my bike for about a year now and the rear is finally worn enough that I'm thinking about replacing. Excellent wear and traction for such a light tire. Mine came in the lower 500 gram range not 480.

Curious because I got about three months use on the rear at ~50km / week
